DB2 Backup command fails with SQL2007N buffers is too small for page size object error message.
An error similar to the following will be returned:
SQL2007N Specified buffersize of "8" 4K buffers is too small for "32768" page size object.
Utility heap size too small for backup
Resolving the problem
Increase the UTIL_HEAP_SZ parameter to size shown in error and rerun the backup command. From the error message shown above the value would need to be set to 32768:
1. Increase the database configuration parameter UTIL_HEAP_SZ to 32768
- db2 connect to database <DBNAME>
- db2 update DB CFG for <DBNAME> using UTIL_HEAP_SZ 32768
- db2 terminate
